'Duck Dynasty' Migrating to White House Correspondents' Dinner
tmz.com/ ^ | April 27 2013

Posted on 04/27/2013 7:16:22 PM PDT by NoLibZone

"Duck Dynasty" stars Korie Robertson and Willie Robertson just alighted on the swamps of Washington, D.C. ... for an appearance at the White House Corresopndents' Dinner!

Just don't tell Tom Brokaw -- as we previously reported, the legendary newsman is boycotting the event after Lindsay Lohan made an appearance last year ... and that was the LAST STRAW.

The Robertson Clan of Duck Dynasty just fell many notches in my ratings.

They are empowering the liberal fascist press who keep Obama in power.Its like going to dinner with Himmler.

The Robertsons can just go duck themselves.

*******************************************************************
Sorry, they are very real people with real names and real lives—God fearing & family centered lives. Sure their show is scripted, but not their lives. And even their “scripted” show is family friendly and is bringing salt and light to their viewers.

You however are most likely not actually really named “NoLibZone” — so you even give yourself a fake name. And you say real people with real lives are fake. Take the plank out of your eye.

Sorry if my remarks offend you — I get very defensive when I detect what could be an attack on Uncle Si.

Let me conclude by saying “Lighten up Francis”.

I’ve never watched the show but from what people have said, I’d gotten the impression they were fairly religious.

I’m a little surprised they’d go to the WH Correspondent’s dinner, but then again, maybe TLC or whatever channel they are on got the invite and insisted they go??? I don’t know.

That’s about the way I see it. DD is the best thing on TV.

I never watch the dinner anyway. Now, if Si ever shows up at that thing?

I’ll have to watch that. LOL

You know, you have to start where people are. These guys are open about their Christianity. I’m sure they were invited as a joke, but they may end up having a much broader impact.

However, I do find myself being disappointed, as well. Hope the DD guys are not falling for fame and fortune.

It seems that every day htere is yet antoher major let down- ever sicne dear leader took over 4 years ago- every day another outrageous thing happens— DD was theo ne refuge from all the crap and filth and lying and foulness infestign hte airwaves, and now they go and sell out?

Very dissapointing-

“Duck Dynasty” stars Willie and Korie Robertson are set to go to tomorrow night’s White House Correspondents Dinner — one of the major social events of the year in Washington, DC — as guests of CBN News, the news arm of the Christian Broadcasting Network, founded by evangelist Pat Robertson.

News organizations compete to bring the biggest — and most newsworthy celebs — to the dinner, where the president traditionally delivers a comic send-up of the DC press corps.

Doesn’t bother me ‘too’ much about the DD guys attending, as I can look at it more from the vantage-point of them publicizing their brand, as opposed to some kind of all-out endorsement of the proceedings. Would have been obviously more impressed had they declined, though.

That said, the whole WHCD is something that fills me with abject revulsion. The entire elite ruling-class corruptocrats and their toadying handmaidens in the media, partying together... it’s just offensive and stomach-turning on so many levels. A gathering of sheer evil. The very cretins who have conspired together on so many levels to turn the country into such a sewer. Hate these bastards with a white-hot passion. Can’t watch more than ten seconds without wanting to put my fist into the tv-screen.

yeah well, lemme know when they witness to the dear leader and ilk- I’ll agree with you- Jesus was upfront and outspoken abotu beign saved with thsoe folks- But I doubt we’ll see the same from duck dynasty- so yeah- if they don’t then that verse isn’t really describing their situation then- Be bible also says to be in the workld but not OF the world-

NOONE was sayign they shioudl hide in churches- not sure where yo picked that up from

and just for the record- the disciples were told to shake the dust fro mther sandals (a sign of abandonment) when the peopel of the hosue woudl NOT lsiten to what they had to say- they were told to turn their faces from them and not look back- so yeah- we can pull all manner of verses out of hte bible- but bottom line is that they DD woudl have set a much better example by declinign hte invitation out of principle and woudl have sent a clear message that they are true patriots who wouldn’t deign to attend an ANTIAMERICAN’s Dinner party

But wehatever- you see no problem with it- whatever-

Amazing, how many Christian folks had something to say, in a negative manner. You scripture pickin’ donkeys- need to give it a rest. Get off the Cross, already been done, and We need the Wood. Quit bein’ sissies about your Faith. Christ has no room for cowards. These wonderful people have taken a challenge from evil, and presented themselves as ambassadors of US American day to day, exceptionalism. May we thank God, for this Blessing

If I were in the DD folks' shoes, I think I would have politely declined the offer. Look at the negative reactions just on this thread. Bad move, I think.

Well, I remember when Matt Drudge accepted an invitation to the National Press Club... and smoked ‘em.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I remember that two, but we have one little problem. Korie Robertson and Willie Robertson are Obama supporting dems.Now if his uncle or father were attending the White House Correspondence Dinner, then there would be a chance for them to do as Drudge did. There would be Duck calls at every opportune moment as the fawning press speakers genuflected to Obama.

The WHite House Correspondents are just lackeys and fascist enablers. Too bad that Duck Dynasty has to shoulder the obvious down turn in its ratings because of this couple’s foolishness.

Well, that’s not what I’m saying.

Without the invite of a Christian Group, they would not have attended in the first place. Ask yourself, why did CBN decide to attend, to turn the other cheek or to show the Libtards that Christians won’t be hobbled into silence?

I have no idea of the motivations of CBN or the Duckies, so I will refrain from pointing fingers. They attended a silly Dinner with the POTUS, love him (GAG) or hate him, in attendance, big whoop.

I've been many places, that did NOT reflect my values, just to see what was going on first hand...

If people make ASSUMPTIONS about my intent because they SAW me there; it is within their right, for the Bible admonishes to avoid even the appearance of evil: 1 Thessalonians 5:22



But; even JESUS got talked about; due to His association with sinners, winebibbers and tax collectors...
